They’ve fi­nally found the exit!

As if their previous ex­pe­ri­ences weren’t har­row­ing enough, Thomas (played by Dy­lan O’brien) and friends are re­turn­ing to the deadly labyrinth in Maze Run­ner: The Death Cure. The Gladers will risk their lives again raid­ing the leg­endary Last City, an ur­ban jun­gle con­trolled by the or­ga­ni­za­tion WCKD, to res­cue peers.

Wes Ball, who also di­rected The Maze Run­ner and The Scorch Tri­als, is back at the helm of the cul­mi­nat­ing se­quel, whose screen­play was penned by T.S. Nowlin. Hav­ing seen the first two movies and the trail­ers, FHM makes a few pre­dic­tions on how The Death Cure will end.

THOMAS LIVES (AT LEAST LOSES AN ARM)

Fol­low­ing O’brien’s in­jury on set early last year, pro­duc­tion was de­layed un­til March 2017. Does this mean the Teen Wolf ac­tor had been do­ing scenes that are too risky? Ball is known for tweak­ing the sci­ence fic­tion novel on screen, and fans won’t like it if some­thing awry hap­pens to the pro­tag­o­nist, who “kisses” off into the sun­set in print.

THE DEATH CURE WILL FEEL CRAMPED

The film se­ries will be an ac­tual tril­ogy; The Death Cure will re­ally be fi­nal in­stall­ment, un­like those that came be­fore it from the young adult genre (The Hunger Games, Di­ver­gent). As such, Ball packed it with as much as ac­tion and drama. It’s also pos­si­ble that the usual two-hour run­ning time will be ex­tended to cover much sto­ry­line ground.

MAZE RUN­NER 3 WON’T END LIKE THE BOOK

Ball, in an in­ter­view with Col­lider, con­firmed that this third chap­ter will have a ma­jor time jump from The Scorch Tri­als. He may have had to omit some parts of the story, which will spell the dif­fer­ence be­tween the movie and paper­back ver­sions. We just hope that these dras­tic changes don’t turn into plot holes when all’s said and done. Maze Run­ner: The Death Cure, which also stars Kaya Scode­lario, Thomas Brodie-sang­ste, Nathalie Em­manuel, and Pa­tri­cia Clark­son, among oth­ers, hits the­aters early next year
